Paulo Dybala clinched top spot in Group D for Juventus with a stunning free-kick winner, but Atletico Madrid still have work to do to secure their place in the Champions League last 16.

Cristiano Ronaldo returned to the Juve starting line-up having missed the win over Atalanta at the weekend, but it was Dybala who claimed the headlines for himself, smashing home what proved to be the winner right at the end of the first half.

The angle appeared to be too tight for the Argentine, who has recently become a key figure for Maurizio Sarri, but he lashed a finish past Jan Oblak, although the Atletico stopper will be disappointed he was unable to keep it out.

Atleti struggled to create much over the 90 minutes, but were presented with a golden chance in stoppage time, with Alvaro Morata failing to connect with a pass made right across the six-yard box.

That miss was enough to see Juventus claim the win and clinch top spot; Simeone’s side still need a result in the final round of group games.
